Star Trek & Sixties Design, 4: Poppies, My Pretty

"Take your pleasure seriously."
--Charles Eames, mid-century American designer

Marimekko's "Unikko" poppy pattern was designed by Maija Isola (of Finland) in 1964, as well as the "Kaivo" pattern, bottom right.

"The Trouble with Tribbles," aired 1967. Screenplay by David Gerrold, who said, "STAR TREK’S very existence said, 'There will be a future! And we must learn how to make it the best of all possible futures!'”
